Audio editing of audiobooks

I'm a voice artist and I record audiobooks. I am looking to bring someone on to edit the raw files and remove any errors that are in the reading. I don't need any post processing done and this is a very easy, but time consuming job. Some files will have more errors than others, but they are completely unedited so you will be removing a lot of false starts, unwanted pauses etc.

Here the process: I will upload unedited files to DropBox, you will edit them and return (all at 320kbps), I will pay per hour of finished audio. You will also be provided with a copy of the recorded text to make things easier. You do not need to remove breathing sounds.

For reference: When I edit, I can complete one hour of audio editing in about one hour, but it will take you longer at first if you are not experienced. I am constantly producing audio so for the right person this is an ongoing position, you can expect an absolute minimum of 6 hours per week of unedited audio, which is about 4:30 to 5 hours of edited material.

This initial project is for 10 hours of finished audio so please bid with this in mind, for example, $60 if your rate is $6 per hour.

If you want to be considered for this project you MUST edit the sample file attached and return it through a private message (it's only 2 minutes long). Any bids that do not meet this requirement will be ignored.
